itizens that work with them, 

I sincerely hope that the people reading this report will consider taking an active part in makiiig Wilmington

To^viv OF Wilmington 

MASSACHUSETTS 01887 



OFFICE OF THE A«EA COOC «I7 

TOWN MANAGER 658-3311 



To the Honorable Board of Selectmen and Citizens of Wilmington; 



As a primary observation for this report, let me say that in Massachusetts we have too many 
locauL govemirasnts and not enough local government. In order to provide a quality and 
controllable municipal service, we should obtain immediately a much stronger voice on Beacon 
Hill, As I also indicated in my budget report, the sacrosanct attitude of municipal officials 
and municipal administrators tovrard the State Legislature must change, and we must assume some 
leadership responsibility for the fiscal protection of the local tax dollar. The State is 
in^xjsing additional cost upon our level of government at an irresponsible rate in the field of 
labor relations and collective bargaining. We have lost sight of the Jeffersonian philosophy 
that "the best government is that which governs least", and if local government is to survive, 
we must regain control of our economic destiny and determine, here in Wilmington, the level of 
expenditures that is most suitable to our needs and ability to pay. 



We are pleased to report during 1 971 , the termination of litigation between the Town and Reading 
Municipal Light Department concerning the assessed value of the personal property of Reading, 
This case has been pending since 196U, The negotiations of the settlement were worked out by 
our Town Counsel Alan Altman, Principal Assessor Anthony Krzeminski, Town Accountant Robert 
Peters, Treasurer Mary Denault, Collector Marion Murphy, myself, and in^jlemented through the 
cooperation of the Associate Commissioner of the State Department of Corporations & Taxation, 
Donald T, Wood, and the then Director of Accounts Arthur MacKinnon, The issue concerned about 
$500,000 in taxes and our tax rate would have been considerably higher had this favorable 
settlement not been accomplished Toy the people mentioned above. 



Looking now at 1972 and the years ahead, I indicated in a recent report to the Selectmen and 
all Department Heads, Boards, Committees and Commissions in a statement of objectives and goals, 
that we need to take positive action in regards to strengthening and extending Tcwn services 
like sewers and water mains in order to cause high quality economic development in appropriate 
undeveloped land in order to promote economic growth and tax revenue. 



In this pursuit and with the encouragement of the Board of Selectmen and the Wilmington Chamber 
of Commerce, I Iiave appointed an economic development group with a full-time development 
director. Also two articles have been placed in the Warrant for the 1972 Annual Town Meeting 
which will deal with this subject matter. The field of economic and industrial development 
operates in a highly con^wtitive market requiring a high grade product backed up by a top fli^t 
team of local officials providing the necessary tools in the field of planning, research, 
development, marketing and finance. It requires persons with broad vision and skills \iio 
understand specific economic fields and can marshall support to attain objectives. 



2 



Wilmington, being a creature of the Commonwealth, has many tools available for financing programs 
for economic development. This is an area where the State can be of assistance. We have 
commercial and savings banks along with insurance companies and financial companies vho will 
supply credit financing from the private sector of the econony. Other sources of credit type 
financing comes from the Massachusetts Business Development Corporation as well as the Small 
Business Administration and the Federal Economic Development Administration vrtiich also provides 
credit financing, A company can obtain equity financing by going public and having an investment 
banker sell shares of stock to investors. 



The newest implement, however, to finance industrial growth projects in Massachusetts is the 
Industrial Revenue Bond. This type of financing is found in the law known as Chapter UO D, M.G.L., 
and is entitled "An Act Providing for Further Industrial Development of Cities and Towns." The 
purpose of the law is to make possible the issuance of revenue bonds by towns in order to finance 
industrial development. The bond issues which accor^slish such financing are eligible for preferred 
treatment under our present federal tax laws, I ask you to seriously consider this enabling 
legislation for Wilmington. 

As a closing observation, I wish to acknowledge that the progress, which has been made over the 
past year, is due to the leadership provided by the Board of Selectmen, and the outstanding 
caliber and cooperation of all department heads and employees. 

The Town of Wilmington will benefit most of all in the future by your presence at the Town Meeting. 
Please plan to attend. 



Respectfully submitted.

accordance with Section 1, Chapter 3, of the Town By-laws, meetings of the Board of Registrars were held on 
ii second Monday of each month for the registration of voters and the conduct of business. Under Chapter 626 
) the Acts of 19^8, this meeting is open to the public and the press, and it is so posted in the Town Hall. 

y.s was a fairly quiet year - one election and two town meetings. The Board met extra evenings to certify 
lies on nomination papers and Warrant Articles. 

^! election laws are changing constantly. Of interest this year is the fact that the Board of Registrars 
lid not disqualify a name on a nomination paper due to a discrepancy in the middle name or middle initial, 
:;iio that naturalization papers need not be produced for the purpose of registering to vote, 

Inen, married prior to January 1 , must re-register under their marriage name. 

I: order to keep the voting list as up to date as possible, the Board annually coit5)ares the voting list with 
;]■ yearly census. If a voter's name does not appear in the census, it is subject to removal from the voting 
"•lister, 

fr residents are requested to notify the Board of Registrars of the date which they take residence in the 
*n. Any change of address within the town during the y^ar should be brought to the attention of the Board 
Rthat your name will not be removed from the voting list inadvertently.

Building Department is almost self-sufficient. 

Demolition of substandard structures continued successfully in 1 971 . 

Administration of the Zoning ^y-Law takes more and more time. Every effort is made to enforce the By-law as 
time permits. 

Constant effort is required to ensure that violations of the gravel regulations and Hatch Act are detected 
before they prove injurioxxs to the Town.

Library Trustees 



In keeping with their conviction that reading, studying and information seeking are vital coinnianity habits, 
the Trustees assvime the i^sponsibility for promoting the effectiveness of library service and for informing 
the townspeople of the library's progress and needs. 

1971 has been a year of beginnings and endings while still maintaining continuity. During the past year U, 
library lost the services of its valued Director, Mr, Jereny Slinn, who returned to the academic world, 
accepting the position of Head Librarian at Newton College of the Sacred Heart, During his tenure here, 
^f^, Slinn provided initiative and enthusiasm together with perspective and intelligence. He possessed a c 
raitinent to the field, an interest in people and their information needs, and we most gratefully acknowledg 
his contributions. 

The Board is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr, Philip Meriam as Director, Mr, Meriam is a gradua 
of Alfred University and holds his Masters of Library Science degree from Rutgers, Prior to coming to 
Wilmington, Mr, Meriam served as Director of the Dedham Public Library, 

Changes which the past few years have made on our schools and campuses have also increased and altered the 
demands for reference information and materials the library must have available for its patrons. Toward 
meeting this need, the library has acquired the services of a full-time reference librarian, funded by the 
Emergency Enqjloynent Act of 1 971 , 

It also gives the Boaixi of Trustees great pleasure to announce that the Wilmington Memorial Library has 
recently been designated a Federal Depository, thereby immensely increasing the scope of its collection. 
Depository Libraries exist In each Congressional District, the designations being made by the United State 
Representative from each district. The Trustees are deeply grateful to our Representative from the 5th 
District, Congressman F, Bradford Morse, for designating Wilmington and for his continuing interest in our 
community. 

The Trustees also wish to express their lasting appreciation to Mrs, Wavie M, Drew for her thoughtful and 
generous gift of The Flying Cloud , The painting was presented to her by the townspeople at a testimonial 
dinner held upon the occasion of her retirement from public sejrvlce. The Flying Cloud now hangs in the ma 
library vhere it continues to be enjoyed by all the citizens of Wilmington, 

The Board would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr. Meriam and the raeni)ers of the library staff for 
their dedication and ability in keeping the library responsive to community needs. Once again, we are 
grateful to the tovmspeople for their continued support in making the library an institution of education 
for democratic living.

Highway Department 



As in the past all regular Highway maintenance work was carried out during the year, such as patching stn ii 
cleaning catch basins, scraping back roads, erection of street signs, sweeping streets, replacing guard n j 
painting guard rail posts, replacing broken curbing, etc. 

Drainage ; We eliminated the following drainage problems: Installed catch basin on Salem St, (Rte, 62) i« 
Thrush Rd.j installed two manholes and twelve pipes on Dadant Dr. (I do not believe this problem has beenj 
eliminated due to the almost flat elevation of the area); North St, - catch basins and pipe installed; 
Middlesex Avenue - catch basin and pipe installedj Taft Rd. - catch basins installed; Adams St, - catch hi 
and pipe installedj Baker St, & Phillips Ave. - catch basins and pipe installed. Two problems were elimirt 
with the use of hot top. We also repaired many of the catch basins around Town, There are many more prots 
to be taken care of in 1972, 

Chapter 90 Construction : We constructed 1,500 feet of Andover Street, There is still slope work to be dc 
and the finish coat of hot top to be put on. This will be finished in 1972,

and the Silver Lake Betterment Hall, It was all hauled to the Town Dump. 

Signs ; All signs are now made by the Highway Dept. at a savings of about fifty percent to the Town. 

Sidewalk Program : On September 10, 1971, I received a memo from the Town Manager stating that due to the 
the bids prepared by the Engineering Dept., for sidewalk construction, came in too high, the Highway Dept, 
would construct the sidewalks for 1971, The following sidewalks were constructed: Shawsheen Ave, from Gr.i 
Drive to Wilton Drive, j Wobum St, from Park St, to Sheridan Rd, Also constructed sidewalks on Boutwell 
from about the school driveway to Taft Rd, and also a small section on Ballardvale St, Ninety-five perce: 
of the sidewalks are corpleted. There is still some slope work, loam, and seeding to be done, Boutwell Si 
and Ballardvale St, were not included in the bid that was too high, but the Highway Dept, was able to consl| 
them all for the fifty thousand dollars that was voted at the Town Meeting. 

Snow & Ice ; Snow and ice removal still remains a major and very expensive problem. 

Clean-up - Pick-up Campaign ; The annual clean-up pick-v^ campaign was conducted in April, We received ore 
900 calls for pick-up. Approximately hOO truck loads were hauled to the Town Dump,

eir help, especially during snow storms. To the Tree Dept. a special thanks for their help in removing 127 
ees for sidewalk construction. To the Town Manager and the Board of Selectmen for their support throughout 
e year. To the men of the Highway Dept. who made 1971 a very productive year, my sincere thanks and 
preciation. 



do 



Tree Department 



ring the year the Tree Department carried on its routine work of cutting, removing and trimming trees. The 
ee planting program, which started in April, proved to be very successful. There were 200 Norvray I-Iaples set 
t from the requests that were sent in. The feeding of various trees was carried out. Due to the widening 
streets and the sidewalk program, there were 127 trees removed and disposed of, with an additional 72 
iT^maged roadside trees from various parts of the town. Tree spraying began in April for control of certian 
Isects, Snow plowing was done for the Cemetery Department. Andover Street Construction Program was carried 
with the removal of several large trees. We also assisted the school mainterisnce, installing lights at 
oi^rious tennis courts, using the skyworker, A total of 317 trees of various species were removed during the 
iar of 1 971 , 



m Leaf Beetle and Dutch Elm Disease: 



ijiples of certain trees believed to be diseased were sent to Anherst State College, due to their report 29 
'Vre Dutch diseased a»i had to be removed. Stung) removal is done by rising the Tree Department stun?) 
:tter. All roadside elm trees were sprayed with dormant spray during April, 

! th Department : 

^ Graying was done for the control of such insects as white pine weevil, tent caterp illa rs, European pine, 
^'ipsy moth, shoot moth, spruce gall aphids, maple bladder gall, fall web worms and oak skeletonizersc The 
'Tfect of the spraying for the skeletonizers seens to have controlled them considerably. If there is any 
;^pearance of them in the coming year, please feel free to contact the Tree Department, There were 69 hornet's 
bees nests removed as a result of calls received, 

't' squltos ; 

lapped water and bog holes were treated with liquid larvacide. This has been proven to be harmless to fish, 
eimals and vegetation. The fog generator used and owned by the Tree Depaartraent is very effective in the 
tntrol of the mosquitos. The greatest number of raosquitos are out between eight and twelve o'clock in the 
"tening, and during this time the fogging program is carried on, 

lifould like to thank the Town Manager and the Board of Selectmen for their support throxighout the year, also 
t3 Town departments for their cooperation given this department, and to the men of the Tree Department f<sr

Public Buildings Department 



I respectfully submit the 1971 annual report of the activities of the Public Buildings Department. 

The Shawsheen tennis courts were completed in April 1971 with nets erected for summer tennis activities. 1= 
lighting systems of the tennis courts at the Shawsheen and North Intermediate Schools were conqileted by L 
November 1, 1971, and are now in operation for skating activities, [ 

Extensive roof repairs to flat and pitched roofs were made in the summer of 1971 by contractors and the de- 
partment. One third of the High School roof and flashing was done by a contractor for a cost of $17,000. i 
entire roof of the Wildwood School was done by the department for a cost of $8,000 for materials. The 
Whitefield School roof was reshingled by a contractor for a cost of $6,700. The High School, Swain School ji. 
Fire Station and Highway Garage old section will need extensive work during the summer of 1972. A continue^ 
program of roof maintenance is needed to prevent the costs from rising into hundreds of thousands of dollaiji 

i 

The new heating system at the Highway Garage was con5)leted in April, 1 971 • A local contractor made a swap 
with this department at no cost for the original 1,000 gallon oil tank and in return gave us a U,000 gallor 
tank to use at the Highway, cutting down on deliveries needed there. 

Our own painters painted the exterior of the following buildings: Police Station, Walker School, Whitefiel 
School, Curriculum Center, Mildred Rogers, Wildwood School and the Bath House, Complete interior painting i 
finished at the Buzzell and Swain Schools with various other rooms being done throughout the system, ' 

A new water filtering and softener system had to be installed at the North Intermediate School to prevent t 
corrosion of the entire piping and mechanical systems located throughout the building, , 

New aluminum seat covers were installed by the grounds keepers and carpenters on the home side of the footbl 
bleachers. This will prevent the many splinters and continuous sanding and painting required previously. : 
new baseball diamonds were constructed at the Shawsheen and Wobxum Street Schools, also a new softball fiel 
at the Wobum Street School. i 

Departmental costs rose last year due to the rising cost of material, parts and supplies. It was necessary i 
ask for an extra $30,000 at the special Town Meeting for the fuel oil account because of the near 100^ incri 
of fuel oil and the severe ccld of the first three months of the year. The year 1972 will show more increa i 
due to the costs and the reqiirement of this department to handle the school and town building rubbish cont i 
and the kitchen equipment repair account, ' 

Throughout the year the department hais carried on the continuous work of maintaining the plant facilities a 
grounds of all town-owned builc'ings. Recreation Depajrtment with their increased programs put a heavy strai 
on the grounds section of this department to keep up the playing fields. 

Vandalism continues to increase. There were twenty-four break and entries in various buildings, one attenipj 
arson, three hundred and twenty-one windows broken, fifty glass blocks broken, six roof dormers, chain linkj 
fences destroyed by cutting them and various other malicious damage both inside and outside of the building 

In conclusion, on be h a lf of the department, I would like to thank the other Town Departments and the Town 
Officials for their cooperation.

During 1971 additional water mains were installed by builders and contractors, viz, a total of 3,U6Ii feet of 
6" pipe, together with 250 feet of 8" pipe. Early in the spring of the past year the new Salem Street puiT9)i 

station became operational following the delivery, installation and testing of its new equipment. 



Currently the supply of water for both domestic and industrial use is adequate. Looking ahead ten and twent 
years or more, should the present building trend continue, additional sources of water will be needed by the 
community. In anticipation of these projected needs your Water Commissioners have been studying several 
possibilities. Field representatives of our consulting engineers, Whitmsm and Howard, feel that within the 
community itself there is a possibility of developing other wellfield sites. Beyond that prospect are possj 
connections with the MDC water system and/or the inclusion of the Town of Wilmington in the development of t 
Ipswich River watershed. 

Annoying and costly acts of vandalism continue to plague the department. Favorite targets have been the 
Shawsheen Avenue station and the new Salem Street station. 

Recognizing the necessity for an on-going maintenance plan the Hillside Way standpipe was cleaned and paint€ 
during 1971 by the low bidder W, R, Dunlap ($17,l60). In keeping with the acknowledged policy of system 
maintenance and in?)rovement, old and troublesome 2" mains were replaced with 6" mains in the following stre( 

Idnda Road 1 ,000 feet of 6" pipe $5,273 

Dartmouth Avenue 750 feet of 6" pipe $2,311 



28 



iring the ensiling year and as time and resoiirces permit, the following projects are under consideration: 
1. Replacement of 2" pipe by 6" mains (incltding hydrant installation) on the following streets: 

ESTIMATED COST 

a. Burt Road $2,866 

b. Canal Street $3,796 

c. Hillcrest Road/Ivy Court $3,666 

and perhaps : 

d. Bumap Street $2,972 

e. Kirk Street $U,376 

f . Ferguson Road $U,066 

mil 2, A permanent station at the Town Park to replace the present temporary structure. 

Estimated Cost $23,000 

' litman and Howard, Lie. was engaged to undertake a con^iuter analysis of the present water system and prepare 
report relative to future water requirements. Of particular concern were the following: 

1. What i)T5)rovements and additions to the existing system are necessary, i.e., main 
replacements, main cleaning, extension^ cross-ties, and the respective priority 
for each. 

2, Which solution might be best for the Town to pursue when the time occurs that our 
ground water supply becomes inadequate. 

rery year your Water Commissioners become increasingly aware of the rising number of attempted encroachments 
. x)n Water Department-owned property. These attengjts are and will be resisted whenever there is the slightest 
idication that such encroachment might be detrimental to the water supply and therefore contrary to the 
iterests of the residents of Wilmington.

REGUIAR PROGRAMS: 



A. Summer Playground: Although an existing program, the format was changed in 1971. Leaders 
were on the area for the full day; theme weeks were scheduled — trips and town wide activities 
were in effect, as the Red Sox Trip and the Track Meet (inter-playground con^tition was 
scheduled) - individual playgrounds could have their own trips (trips taken included Boston 
Aquarium, Benson Wild Animal Farm, Canobie Lake, Long Beach, and the Swan Boats) - and Family 
Nights were instituted. Participation for the eight-week program for seven areas was 20,27li. 

B. Handicapped Children's Prograim: This program, designed for those youngsters unable to attend 
the regular summer program because of mental or physical disabilities, was highly successful. 
Twenty-five youngsters, from age U to 1 7, took part in this initial offering. Games, art and 
crafts, music, and drama were similar to those at the regular summer areas. Additional items 
for these children were swimming one day per week, a field trip one day per week, their own 
Olympics and Family Nights, as well as a complete recording of the children's progress. 

C. Theatre Group: This all amateur, all Wilmington group, presented their first production in 
March, 1971, to a highly receptive avidience. Subsequent performances are scheduled for 
January 1972, April 1972, and November 1972. 

D. Elementary Gym Activity: This is a winter program for first through sixth grade boys and 
girls. An opportunity is provided for exercise, competition, and fun on the following basis: 
Grades one and two from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. j grades three and four from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m., and 
grades five and six from 11 a.m. to noon. This program is conducted at the Shawsheen, Wobum

youngsters in these grades in Wilmington. 

E. Co-Rec Nights: This is a Friday evening program for seventh and ei^th grade boys and girls, 
conducted on alternate Fridays at the North and West Intermediate Schools. The youngsters 
play basketball, volleyball, hockey, quiet games, listen to records, and relax with 
friends. This is an opportunity for them to use the schools in a non-school program.

'EGUIAR PROGRA^E; (continued) 



F. Senior Citizens: This program began in the spring, centered on those living in the Deming 
V/ay Housing Project, and is being expanded in an attempt to service all of those elderly 
in town with luncheons, trips, economic help, social services and the like, 

G. Playschool : Originally begun by a group of mothers in 1 970 - 1 971 . This program was 
taken over, administratively, by the department. Over 1^0 youngsters, ages four and five, 
have an opportimity to socialize and learn in the class setting, 

H. Other new programs include: Boys' Soccer, the Youth Golf Association, Open Qym, and 
youth and adult classes. 

'■^'Iie department finds it advantageoiis to cooperate with other public and private groups to sponsor programs 
^nd/or to attend meetings in the interest of recreation. Among such groups are: 

Rotary Winter Carnival, Youth Programs, Senior Citizens 

Council of Churches Teen and Senior Citizen Programs 
Inter-Agency Planning Committee

were also taken to investigate con^jlaints of back yard burning, j 

Solid waste disposal became a matter of increased concern to the Board due to the change in the air pollutix 
and sanitary land fill regulations. Looking to the future, the Board investigated various possibilities to 
coping with solid waste. 

Monies allocated to the Drug Program were assigned to the Board of Health for approval of expenditures, 
A state audit was conducted of Board of Health records and found to be satisfactory. 

The State Health Department enacted new legislation dealing with sanitary land fills. These became effecti^ 
in April, 

The Board prepared new regulations allowing them to update their fees for certain pemiits, 

A survey was conducted to determine the number of houses being serviced by the garbage collector. This was 
the first of its kind in town.

Drug Committee 



'he focal point of activities for the Wilmington Drug Committee in 1 971 was the establishment of a Learning 
Center, The Center is located in the Wesley House of the Methodist Church and is open four days a week. The 
Center was established to offer alternatives to the use of drugs for the youth of Wilmington, Many programs 
ire now operating at the center such as stained glass, leathercraf t, macrame, jiiotography, electronics, music, 
jip^ovisational drama and counselling, 

'he Center is staffed by SHARE personnel idiose background and experience are directly related to the programs 
)ffered at the Center, 

'he youth attending the Center are a representative cross-section of the young people of the Town, Some of 
.he young people have had no experience with drugs, but turn to the Center as a place to find themselves as 
jeople. The main objective of the Center is to allow the opportunity for a person to work out their problems 
riliout turning to the use of drugs. The Drug Committee realizes that the Center does not meet the needs of 
ill the youth of the Town and has made recommendations to the Recreation Director for more activities to be 
lade available as an alternative, 

lecause this is a totally different kind of program that has been initiated in the Town, the Committee 
•ealizes that some people are going to have misgivings about its correctness. However, at the present time 
Jiis kind of Center is the best method of working with the young people. Problems will arise and have arisen 
rith this type of program but, if calm amd reason prevail, these problems can be solved. The reason we have 
irograms such as drug education and Learning Centers is that problems do exist, and it is felt that these 
arograms offer a viable solution. 

s an overview of the total SHARE programs in rehabilitation. Anabasis House is working well after several 
•ears of existence. The first two people to complete two years of living at the House were graduated in 
eptember. However the House is overcrowded, and a new site is being sou^t to relocate the facilities. When 
lew quarters are found for the House, the present site will be used for the Methadone program, a crisis inter- 
ention program, and screening process for Anabasis House, 

or the year 1972, the Drug Committee will continue their interest in the Learning Center and overall SHARE 
Tograms with special interest in adult education.

Redevelopment Authority 



he Wilmington Redevelopment Authority is comprised of four elected members serving for a term of five years, 
jid one member appointed by the Governor. The Authority is engaged in a single project known as the Eames 
;treet Industrial Park. The project consists of the acquisition and assembling of a large number of small 
ots of questionable title into a single, large parcel with clear title, to be offered for sale for indus- 
rial MSB in accordance with the approved Land Assembly Plan, Because of the recent sanitary sewer project 
n the area of the Eames Street Site, the Authority will be in a position to offer the land with both 
anitary sewer and railroad siding. 

luring the past year, the project has progressed as follows: At the Annual Town Meeting of March, 1971, the 
leqple of Wilmington appi^jved a bond issue of $200,000 to carry out the Development Plan. Immediately upon 
.j^jTOval of the Town Meeting's action by the Attorney General, the Authority submitted the approved Plan 
nd Financing to the State Department of Coramanity Affairs for its approval. After several months the 
equired approval was received, and the Authority let two contracts, one to Attorney John W, McCann for the 
itle Examination and one for an Acquisition Appraisal to Mr, Kenneth P. Harkins, At the end of 1971, the 
itle Examination has been completed in accordance with the time schedule and has been approved by the 
uthority and the Department of Community Affairs. The Acquisition Appraisal is under way and is expected 
be delivered to the Authority by January 31, 1972. Upon receipt of this report and its acceptance by the 
uthori-ty and aj^oval by the Commonwealth, the Authority will proceed to the taking of the land and 
ssembling it for the resale stage. 

t approximately mid-year, the Town Treasurer issued the Bonds for the funding authorized by the Town Meeting, 
he funds from these bonds, above those required for the day-to-day operation of the Authority, are invested 
ntil such time as they are needed by the Authority, 

Hiring the year the Authority and the Town were saddened by the passing of Rene J, LaRivee, a charter member 
If the Authority and a strong force in its progress since its establishment by the Town Meeting in 1966, The 
uthority will miss Mr. LaRivee 's hard work and capable leadership. 

fill Mr. LaRivee 's unexpired term, the Authority and the Board of Selectmen, in accordance with law, net 
nd voted to appoint Mr. William F, Butt. Mr, Butt's considerable experience in the contracting and building 
ield is a welcome asset to the Aiithority, 

he Authority wishes to thank the msmbers of the various boards and connilttes, as well as the townspeople as 
i^le, for their continued cooperation over the past year.

School Committee 



The School Coramittee of the Town of Wilmington herewith presents its report for the year 1 971 , The 
meinisership of the Committee was as follows: 

Walter J. McNamara, Chairman 

L. Barbara Hooper, Vice Chairman 

Nancy Clark, Secretary 

John D, Brooks 

Diana C. Imbimbo 

Arnold F, Lanni 



Buildings - Now or When? 

During 1971 the School Committee continued its struggle with the problems of inadequate classroom space. Th 
Advisory Coramittee ;diich was formed in December of 1970 worked with the Superintendent of Schools to map a 
future course of action for the School Committee to consider. This committee, made up of representatives 
from all of the various Town Boards and Commissions, School Administrative Personnel, and concerned citizens 
met regularly twenty times over a six-month period during which they intensively studied the future school 
building requirements. They carefully considered several options iriiich the community could follow to help 
alleviate this pressing problem. During the covirse of its study, the Advisory Committee visited neighboring 
schools as well as local schools, met with representatives from the School Building Assistance Bureau, met 
with architects for basic building information, gathered and studied a vast amount of data having to do with 
school building needs, and developed a series of recommendations for the School Coramittee to consider 
presenting to the Town. 

These recommendations were presented to the School Coramittee at its regular meeting on May 20, 1 971 . The 
recommendations were as follows: 

1 . Construct a high school addition sufficient to meet the educational specifications as 
outlined in "The Wilmington Report" as prepared by Hill, Miller, Friedlaender, 
Hollander, Inc., dated June 1, 1970, 

2. Acquire all available land in the present hig^ school area as possible. This type of 
acquisition of land would bring the total site up to approximately forty (I^O) acres. 

3. Construct an addition that would have future expansion possibilities. It is the 
feeling of the Advisory Coramittee that this factor should be considered now by the 
School Committee and be incorporated into their recommendations to the Permanent 
Building Coimnlttee. 

U. Construct an addition that meets the educational needs of today, but more ln;x>rtant 
the educational needs of the future. The addition, therefore, requires a great deal 
of imagination and flexibility, and every effort should be made hy the selected 
architect to fulfill this most iinportant requirement. The construction itself should 
be of good quality — not the cheapest ~ not the most expensive. Changes in 
building construction such as a systems approach should be explored. 



5U 



In an ln^jojrbant statement attached to the recommendations , the Advisory Committee nade the following 
observation : 

"The Advisory Coratnittee in making these recommendations regarding a High School addition fully 
realizes that we are only dealing with the needs at the 9-12 level. We recognize the needs of 
the K-6 and 7-8 levels, and we encourage the School Committee to concern itself with these 
other levels in the very near future. We consider our recommendations as a major first step 
in solving the future school building needs of Wilmington." 

The School Committee as well as the Community is indebted to the dedicated and conscientious citizens lAo 
gave liberally of themselves while participating on the Advisory Committee. 

At the Special Town Meeting of June 2h, 1 971 , the townspeople did not elect to vote favorably on the warrant 
article having to do with the purchase, by eminent domain, of additional properties adjacent to the present 
Hi^ School site. The purpose of this acquisition would have been to provide the needed space for a major 
High School addition. 

Following this defeat the School Coninittee continued to explore other alternatives to house the town's 
climbing school enrollments into the mid-1970's. A subcommittee was set up to study the extended school 
year. This subcommittee involving school committee members and school administrators has been meeting for 
seven months and will report to the School Committee early in 1972. 

Two important events happened during the fall of this year that may provide new ingjetus to a School Building 
procedure in the near future. 

1 . The School Committee requested a joint meeting with the Permanent Building Committee, 
Board of Selectmen, Finance Committee, Planning Board and the Town Manager in an 
atten^rt to iit^jrove communication and to ascertain tdiose direct responsibility is 
involved in the various aspects of a School Building Prograim. From this iii?x»rtant 
and profitable meeting the following six responsibilities were agreed to and 
designated : 

A. Preparation of Educational Specifications ; The School Committee has the obli- 
gation to prepare the Educational Specifications. Once prepared, they will be 
forwarded to the Permanent Building Committee. 

B. Recommendation of Site(s) ; The Permanent Building Committee fulfills the 
function of recommeiKling sites for new construction. It is recognized that 
the assistance of the Planning Board, in this area, would be most helpful. 

C. Land Taking ; This area falls within the realm of the Board of Selectmen, 
including all negotiations with any and all involved parties, 

D. Cost Analysis ; The research of the costs, including construction and site pre- 
paration, will be prepared by the Permanent Building Committee, The School 
Committee is responsible for providing cost factors for the movable equipment 
such as desks, chairs, supplies, kitchen utensils, etc, 

E. Selection of Architects ; The Permanent Building Committee selects the architect 
for the building being considered . 

F. Presentation to Town Meetings ; The presentation at town meeting will be a shared 
process whereby the various boards iiiitiate the formal motion in their respective 
areas of responsibility. 

2. The second major event irfiich affects School Building programs occurred during the fall 
of 1971 when the State Legislature provided for an increase in total school construction 
reimbursement from ^0% to 6^% and extended the reimbursement to include the cost of the 
interest paid on construction bonds. Wilmington presently classifies as one of the 
communities eligible to receive the 6^% reimbursement and this obviously makes an 
important difference in the financial effort required to build new educational facilities. 



^5 



In li^t of these two developments, the School Committee presented to the Permanent Building Committee on 
December 16, 1971, the educational specifications for two major building options, and requested a cost 
analysis from the PBC in the areas of construction and sites, 

1 , Option No, 1 - involves three phases of an addition program and requires major additions 
at all three levels of education - namely High School, Intermediate School and the 
Elementary School level. It further reqiiires that multiple additions be carried out 
simultaneously, 

2, Option No, 2 - involves building a new High School facility on a new site. 

The PBC is currently "costing out" these options and the School Committee expects to receive these estljnates 
earOy in 1972, 

Collective Bargaining 

The School Committee again entered into collective bargaining with teachers, administrators, secretaries, 
nurses, and cafeteria personnel on salaries and conditions of en^jloyment. The result was the realization of 
salary schedules and conditions of enployment with the above groups which kept Wilmington in a con5)etitive 
position with surrounding communities. 

Staff Recruitment 



For the first time in several decades, the number of qualified teachers applying for jobs greatly exceeded 
the number of positions available. Despite this change in teacher supply, the School Committee continued it 
active recruiting program in order to attract the most outstanding candidates and to maintain good relations; 
with our area colleges and universities. The School Administration in attempting to fill U6 available 
positions interviewed over 2,000 applicants from the following colleges and universities: Boston College, 
Boston University, Bridgewater State College, Emmanuel College, Fitchbiirg State College, Gordon College, 
Harvard University, Lowell State College, University of Massachusetts, Northeastern University, Regis College 
Salem State College, Simmons College, Springfield College, Tufts University, Wellesley College. 

In addition to these Institutions, information about the Wilmington Public Schools is distributed to many 
colleges and universities in other states. This effort has successfully attracted candidates from all over 
the nation. 

Curriculum Development and Iitqprovenent 

The Committee, upon recomnendation of the Superintendent of Schools, Instituted several new curriculum 
innovations including new testbook adoptions, additional course electives, in-service work for staff in 
Innovative teaching methods and the implementation of individualized instruction on a large scale through thi 
IGE concept. The Committee further approved a reorganization of the school counseling department and an 
expansion of the audio-visual madia center with related support services. 

Resignations and Retirement 

Requests for leaves of absence and resignations were received from forty (UO) teachers for the following 
reasons :

The School Committee was deeply saddened hj the untimely death of Mrs. Jane Graupner on December 16, 1971o 
Mrs. Graupner had served the Town of Wilmington for twelve and one-haJi" years as a special class teacher. 
She was much loved and admired by her students and colleagues, and her loss was felt throughout the total 
system. In addition to her teaching responsibilities, Mrs. Graupner held office in the Wilmington Teachers 
Associations 

The School Committee wishes to acknowledge the retirements of Mrs. Mildred Keville and Mrs. Margaret I^loney 
at the close of the 1970-1971 school year. Both Mrs, Keville and Mrs. Maloney had faithfully served the 
community for 22 years in vaurious teaching and supervisory assignments at the elementary grade level. 
Mrs. Keville 's most recent assignment was as a teaching Principal at the Walker Elementary School, 
}frs, Maloney retired from her most recent assignment as a Grade 3 teacher at the Buzzell Elementary School. 
Mrs, Keville and Mrs. Maloney had been extremely active in the profession, and both were well respected by 
the Committee, administration, fellow teachers, parents and pupils. The Committee extends its appreciation 
to both ladies for their faithful service and wishes each a happy and fruitful retirement. 

The Wilmington Public Schools were in operation 180 days beginning September 9, 1970, and ending June 25, 1971. 
The Committee held txrenty-six (26) regular meetings, three (3) special meetings, and nineteen (19) meetings 
relating to collective bargaining, making a total of forty-eight (U8) meetings for the year 1971. 

The Committee extends its sincere appreciation to town officials, town departments, and to the citizens of 
Wilmington for their fine cooperation and assistance during the past year. 



Permanent Building Committee 



During the past year, the PerToanent Building Committee continued to pursue its functions in public building 
constiniction, and an Architect was engaged to draw up preliminary plans and specifications for an addition 
to the Police Station. 

At the recommendation of an Ad Hoc Committee of the School Departmsnt, an addition to the High School was 
studied, and land sites appraised for presentation at a Special Town Meeting held in June. 

The Permanent Building Committee has been meeting with the School Department in an endeavor to solve future 
school building needs.

Superintendent of Schools 



I herexd-th submit my Annual Report of the activities of the Wilmington Public Schools for the year 1 971 . 

This report will be divided into the follovring categories: 

I, ELementary 

II. Intermediate 

III. High School 

IV . Systemwide 

V, General Highlights 



I. EIEMEWTARY 
Under this category I will comment on the following: 

A, I.G.E. 

B, Adapted Physical Education 

C, New Adoptions 

A, After a considerable aitcunt of investigation and planning^ two elementary schools coiqjrising 
approximately $0% of the elementary population entered into a new educational concept entitled 
"INDIVIDUALIZ GUIDED EDUCATION". This school organizational plan was pioneered by the 
Wisconsin Research and Development Center and further developed by the Institute for Develop- 
ment of Educational Activities Inc. The I.G.E, program is presently installed in 500 schools 
involving 7,500 teachers and over 1 80,000 youngsters. The program evolves around a league 
concept which is con5)rised of school districts within a specific geographic location. The 
only league in the Northeast region of the country is called Project League and operates under 
the aegis of the Merrimack Education Center, Wilmington and twelve other elementary school 
systems conqjrise Project League, 

Individually Guided Education is a system for in5)roving instruction for elementary children. 
It has many variations to accommodate an individual's ability, learning style, and rate of 
learning. The main objective of I,G,E, is to provide for differences among children and in 
the rates at •triiich they learn, and also in their modes or styles of learning, 

I,G,E, utilizes a four step cycle consisting of: 1. Assessment - vhat has the child already 
learned? 2. choosing objectives - what does the child need to learn? 3. learning program 
implementation - what instructional aides will help the child meet his learning objectives? 
k. reassessment - has the child achieved his objectives? The cycle is repeated in each 
subject for each child. If a child does not achieve his objectives he does not repeat the 
material previously presented, but a new approach with new materials is tried to aid him in 
reaching his goals. 

The Shawsheen Avenue and Wobum Street Schools are initiating the I,G,E, concept in one subject 
area. The Shawsheen Avenue School is implementing it in math and the Woburn Street School is 
initiating it in the area of reading. 

An inqxjrtant part of this program is a continuous in-service program for teachers ■vdiich increases 
their skills and abilities in planning, developing and implementing such an individualized 
program. 



58 



This program has initiated more active community participation within these school districts. 
Each school has a Parent Advisory Council and has many volunteer parents assisting, 

B, A pilot Program at the elementary level entitled "Adaptive Physical Education" was introduced 
to grades h, 5, and 6, Mr. Janes Gillis was appointed to establish this new program and he 
is assisted by Mr, Lawrence Gushing, Director of Physical Education and Mr. Gleo Fredette, 
Acting Director of Special Education, 

The program is intended to help children with inabilities in the present program as well as 
those with motor problems in other areas, both areas \Aich require additional time with 
specialized instruction. At the present time grades U, 5, and 6 are being used for the 
organization of classes idiich will be derived from testing programs, teacher referrals, and 
medical referrals. 

By using all the physical education instructors at the elementary level, a total of 2,972 
students were given a screening test and information was accumulated for further reference. 
Of the 1,^11 students in grades U, 5, and 6 tested, 199 were designated as needing special 
attention. Therefore, at the present time there are 21 classes throughout the town which 
are now receiving special attention through a program of activities to iirprove their present 
rate of muscle growth. We feel certain that within three months at least thirty-three 
percent of these children will return to their regular classes as they will have graduated 
through orderly development, 

C, As a result of months of committee deliberations comprised of elementary teachers, principals 
and specialists under the direction of the Assistant Superintendent of Schools, new programs 
emerged in the areas of Science, Social Studies, Mathematics and langtiage Arts, Materials, 
including textbooks, have been procured after a thorough investigation and revamping of present 
curriculum guides. 



II, INTERMEDIATE 



Mention will be made of the following at this level: 



A, ISCS Science Program 

B, Industrial Arts Curriculum Project 

C, Seventh Period and Activities 



A, A new pilot science program has been initiated in the seventh grade at the North Intermediate 
School titled ISCS - Intermediate Science Ciirriculum Study, The program allows the pupils to 
investigate concepts in science in a laboratory situation. ISCS allows students to study at 
their own rate of speed since they work individually or with a partner. The seventh grade 
program provides a basic understanding of the physical sciences - forces, electricity, the 
metric system, method of measuring, etc. The program has generated a high degree of interest 
by both students and teachers. It is proving to be extremely successful and as a result it 
will be expanded to encoii?)ass grades 7 and 8 in both intermediate schools in the coming year, 

B, The North Intermediate School has introduced a new industrial arts curriculum - the World on 
Construction. In this program students stixiy, discuss and perform actual and simulated 
construction industry operations and management practices. The course materials cover all 
phases of construction, exposing students to possible careers in the construction field. The 
program is helpful in the respect that young people now work together in all areas and gain a 
realization and appreciation of the World on Construction, From the foundation to the roof, 
the pattern unfolds and students meet this end result with a high degree of satisfaction. 

C, Both schools at this level expanded their prograu^e to include a seventh period during the day. 
This change allowed for a greater degree of flexibility in scheduling and grouping of students. 
It also allowed for the activity periods \rtiich are an iii5)ortant part of the intennediate 
program. The sports activities, as might be expected, attract the largest numbers of students. 
Many other activities show the wide span of interest such as shop for girls, chef club for boys, 
student council, drama, chorus, band, arts and crafts, needlework, chess, rocketry to name a 
few. This airea in both schools falls under the direction of the Assistant Principals, 

Mr, Joseph Gilligan at the West Intermediate School, and Mr, James Jordan at the North Inter- 
mediate School, 

59 



ni. KLW SCHOOL 



Effective this September the High School was forced to extend the day to a seven period day. This was 
necessary as the enrollment exceeded 1 ,300 at this level irtiich is well beyond the capacity of the present 
structure. While this type of scheduling has some disadvantages, it is preferable to double sessions, Througl 
the use of con?>uter scheduling and the efforts of the new scheduling coordinators it was possible to provide 
the seventh period, and only add ten minutes to each day. In order to accon5)lish this type of scheduling, it 
was necessary to reduce each class period by approximately ten minutes. Therefore, classes are conducted in 
a forty-five (U5) minute segment rather than the usual fifty-five minute period. 

New course offerings: Italian was added to the Foreign Language areaj Human Behavior was added to the Social 
Studies area 5 Industrial Design was included in the Industrial Arts Department. 

The assembly program at the Hi^ School has featured a variety of presentations. During the past year the 
Lieutenant Governor of Massachusetts, The Registry of Ifetor Vehicles and the First Naval District Band have 
presented programs. Special interest assemblies included a fashion show, travelogue and singing groups. 
Future plans call for presentations on the environment, man's role in the future, the use of money, and the 
history of rock. 

The Woric Study Program continued to expand and revealed the following: 

Enrollment : Grades 7 through 12 - highest total to date - 138 - l6 years of age and older 

Girls - 62 Boys - 76 

Variety of Jobs : Girls - 19 Boys - 2k 

Number of Working Hours Per Week : 15 to 50 
Rates of Pay per Hour : $1,^0 to $3.28 
Areas of Employment ; Greater Lowell and Greater Boston 

New Ventures ; Co-op Program for Seniors with Sweetheart Plastics working toward full-time 
employment. Other concerns being approached for similar undertakings.

Notes 



1 . Fewer than one-quarter of the 1971 class menfcers went to a four year college. 
(Actually 22.6^) 

2. Virtually one-half of the 1971 class members went directly into employraent, 
(Actually U8.3^) 

3. The cost of private "name" schools must be considered when examining the 
college list. 



Of major significance at this level was a reorganization of the Counseling Department. In August Dr. James 
Stewart was appointed as Administrator of Counseling Services. Since Dr. Stewart's appointment, there have 
been significant changes in both the philosophy and the direction of the guidance department. These changes 
include the following: 

A, All counseling services from grades 1 through 12 are now under one administration. 
Continuous services to students and their families can be assured from year to 
year, and school to school. 

B, A central counseling service offering individual treatment, group encounters and 
parent-child conferences has been introduced. The newly renovated quarters are 
located on Middlesex Avenue and can be contacted by phoning 658-2576. 

C, More staff tine is being devoted to the elementary schools. A second full-tine 
elenentary school counselor is planned for 1972, 

D, The present consultative sejrvlces for students with serious psychological problems 
is being expanded to include specialists in group work, 

E, There is, and will continue to be, a concerted effort throu^ in-service training, 
seminars, and supervision to up-grade the professional services offered by the 
present staff, 

F, Individual counselors are being encouraged to becone specialists yHiose skills will 
be utilized wherever needed in the school ^stem rather than in one building with 
a limited nuid>er of assigned students, 

0. All standardized testing procedures are being examined and a district-wide testing 
program Is being prepared for School Committee approval. 



IV. SYSTEMTOE 



62 



H, Active research has been initiated in such aireas as under-achievement, drop-outs and 
hi^ school progran changes. In the future these results will be the basis for a 
shift in emfiiasis from remediation to preventative counseling. 

These changing engihases are planned in order to provide continuous counseling services that are based on 
current theories and research data. Consequently, the staff will become more efficient in handling personal- 
social problems related to drug experimentation, family strife, and delinquency. Course selection, college 
placement, and school adjustment matters will continue to be stressed but within a defensible framework of 
total, social adaptation. 

The Leamiiig Disabilities program was revamped to include four trained paraprofessionals under the direction 
of Mr, Cleo Fredette, Acting Director of Special Education, In this same area during the summer of 1971 a 
special program for children with learning disabilities was conducted with federal funds received under a 
Title VI grant written by Mrs, Mary Driscoll, Principal of the Boutwell School,

Oiemot Knox, Asst. Director, Div. of Occup. Education} Senator Ronald C. MacKenzie; and J. Edward Ferrarone 
Associated Industries of Mass, 

Menlsers of the staff, as well as many of the parents cooperated to make this event a very successful one, A 
estimated ^,000 people attended the dedication and open house. 

In order to utilize this school to its maximum, the School Committee had approved two entering classes in 
Septeni>er 1970, Grades 9 and 10, so that the year 1971 saw 3kO students enrolled in 12 different courses. 
Also, a new entering 9th grade class increased enrollment to 

In addition, a course In Distributive Ed (merchandising) was approved by the Coimnittee and the Division of 
Occupational Education, and stai^>ed on September 1, 1971. A federal grant in the amount of $12,758 wsis 
received to pay for the initial cost of establishing this course. 

Approval for a slx^week sunoner school course was given. This was the start of an extended school year for 
students ttbo were interested in getting additional credit so they could complete their requirements early ini 
the senior year. 



Evening school classes were approved. An Evening School Coordinator, Mr. John Chllds, was appointed, and 
classes started the first week in October. 



In order to assist those students nAio applied for the regular day school, bat could not be accepted because

were enrolled in this program. 



61* 



In January, the School Connnittee recognized the in-house teachers' association as a collective bargaining 
grovBp for teaching personnel. This action was also approved by the State labor Relations Commission. 
Meetings were held with the negotiating subcommittee of the teachers' association, and a 2 year contract was 
drawn up and approved by all parties concerned. 

Approval was given for the establishment of a breakfast program for students. 

Because of the large number of students who could not be accepted into the regular program, the School 
Committee has taken action to enlarge the facilities. This has been done through the Long Range Planning 
Subcommittee and the appointment of a Hiase II Coordinator. Mr, Joseph Bastable was ten^wrarily appointed to 
this position, to work in conjunction with the Superintendent-Director, with the responsibility for developing 
curricula, building layout and all other facets of the addition to the school to meet the continiiing needs of 
the District for vocational technical facilities. 

The Committee approved the follovrLng activities for students:

Superintendent Shawsheen Valley 



REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT -DIRECTOR 



INTRODUCTION 



The year 1971 saw Shawsheen Tech still in the throes of many adjustments common to all new schools. The 
physical facilities were yet to be completed in some aireas; students and teachers were adjusting to new 
environments and the utilization of new equipment, I feel that all members of the staff and students are to 
be con?)limented for enduring the many inconveniences until all the ajustments were made, 

FACILITIES 

As the year progressed, the following areas were conqjleted and made available for use: guest dining room, 
gymnasium and auditorium and TV studio. Also, the outdoor track and tennis courts were conpleted and used 
by the students as part of the physical ed program. The baseball area, football and soccer fields have been 
seeded and expected to be finished for use in the Spring of 1972, 

DEDICATION 

Formal dedication of the school took place in March of this year. Good weather, coupled with enthusiastic 
interest, resulted in a record crowd of over 5,000 people turning out for the event. The formal exercises 
took place in the cafeteria. The dedication was televised, making it possible for an additional 200 persons 
to see and hear the ceremony in the Auditorium, The members of the Parents Council were most helpful in 
supervising the parking area, and many of our own students served as guides for the visitors ■vrtio toured the 
building, 

ENROLLMENT 

A new ninth grade, the second entering class, was admitted in September of 1971. This, in addition to the 
students in Qrades 1 and 11, saw the enrollment increase to students , The school also saw the addition 
of a 13th course in Distributive Education, using equipment made possible by a federal grant. 

An experimental program was started in October, with promise of federal fxmding, providing training for 80 
additional sttidents from the five towns. Arrangements were made for these students to take their academic 
work at their regular school and participate in a shop or lab progrsim at Shawsheen Tech each afternoon from 
2:30 to 5s00 P.M., with transportation provided by our school. This supplementary program will be evaluated 
in the Spring of 1972 to determine further action. 

A special six-week summer program was conducted during July and August of 1971 under the supervision of 
Mr. Donald Ayer, Coordinator. Approximately I80 students were enrolled. Commissioner of Education Sullivan 
was particularly interested in this program since it was the first in the State to have his approval as part 
of a regular school curriculum, considsred as an exaii;>le of an extended school year. This summer course 
proved very successful, and it is anticipated it will be expanded the following year. 

The first week in October saw the opening of the first adult evening class under the supervision of 
John Childs, Coordinator. Adults were enrolled in two groups. 

1 . Those working at a particular trade wishing to in9>rove or update their skills, and 

2, Preparatory coiu'ses for those wishing to acquire a new skill. 

By the end of the year 1971, approximately 570 adults were enrolled in 25 different courses. 



66 



Ui looking ahead to the Fall of 1972, it is anticipated that enrollment in the various programs will be as 



follows: 



Day school 
Summer program 
Supplementary 
Evening school 



7U0 students 
300 students 
180 students 
700 students 



It is expected that we will be serving approximately 1920 persons in the following school year. 
PILOT PROGRAM 



An experimental program for training of special class students in a vocational environment showed good 
progress upon completion of its first year in June of 1971. The following September, an additional 12 
students were added to this program. This project was chosen by the ^fess. Department of Education as one of 
the three outstanding programs in the State of Massachusetts for the training of handicapped students. 



BREAKFAST PROGRAM 



Because of the long bus ride to school, a number of students expressed interest in having breakfast in the 
school cafeteria. Accordingly, arrangements were made to serve a nutritious breakfast each morning from 
7:30 to 7:55 at a cost of per student. At present, approximately 100 students enjoy breakfast each 
morning in our cafeteria. 



SCHOOL OPERATION 



The ninth grade exploratory program was reviewed and revised. The first school year, 9th grade students 
participated in four shops or labs, changing every 8 weeks. In September of 1971, the program was modified, 
permitting students to engage in five occupational areas, changing every 6 weeks. In addition, for better 
efficiency, students in the following departments were scheduled on a week-in, week-out arrangement, lAereby 
they spent alternate weeks in shop and class. Affected were automotive, auto body, carpentry, machine shop, 
metal fab and culinary arts. 

Teachers engaged in a professional inqjrovement day each month in order to update and inwove quality of 
education. Emphasis has been placed on individualized instruction, particularly in the academic area. 
Members of the staff visited other vocational schools in order to compare methods of instruction. 

It is anticipated that the school will go into computerizing of report cards some tine in the near future. 

An inportant part of the educational process at Shawsheen Tech are visits to Industry and business. The 
year 1971 saw a number of these field trips take place, including visits to General Motors Plant, Framinghamj 
Westejm Electric, Andover; Grossman, Braintree; Jcdm Hancock, Boston; Boston Navy Yard; Hotel and Restaurant 
Show, Boston J Itek and many others. 

At the conclusion of the first year, outstanding students of the Automotive Department were awarded tool kits 
which were donated by Burlington Motor Parts and SK Tools, 



SCHOOL ACTIVITIES 



A Junior Achievement Program was started at ovr school and sponsored by Purity Supreme and Honeywell, This 
activity enconpasses UO students who meet once a week and form their own businesses under the supervision of 
personnel from the two sponsoring companies. The initial response has been gratifying, and it is expected 
that this activity will grow. Class officers were elected for Grades 9, 10 and 11, and students also voted 
on representatives to form a student council. A ski club was formed, and the participating members went on 
various ski trips accompanied by facility members, •trtiich proved to be quite successful. 

A hockey club has also been in operation, and covers some UO to 50 students. This has developed into an 
intramural sport, with considerable enthusiasm on the part of students. 

Three students in Grade 10, Jeffrey Lloyd, Robert Lacey and Richard Johnson, received U.S. Savings Bonds as 
prizes for their entry in a VFW contest on "The Voice of Democracy", 



67 



Maxireen Olson, one of our students who is a school reporter, was the winner of the Lowell Sun's "Most 
Valuable Staffer Award", Many of our students engaged in civic enterprises, including 'Walk for Development", 
sponsoring the Red Cross bloodmobile, and other activities. 



The driver ed course at school has proved very successful, with students being trained in two cars donated hj 
Burlington Dodge, Csirpentry students cooperated with the officials of Tevricsbury in rebuilding the town 
bamdstand, and the auto body students repaired the body of a dunqj truck for the Burlington Public Works 
Department. The school was invited to participate in the Route 128 industrial exhibit, which was held at the 
Burlington Mall during the summer. The school has cooperated with the elderly from Tewksbury and Billerica 
by sponsoring a luncheon ^riiich was held in the school. 

Also, the Parents Council has been quite active in various projects that would be of benefit to the school 
and the students. 

Looking ahead, the year 1972 will see the start of our first senior class. We anticipate that those seniors 
who are proficient academically will have an opportunity to go on to further education, I have had assurance 
from President Houlihan of Middlesex Community College that qualified seniors will be accepted into that 
school upon recommendation, 

I attended conferences relative to new programs and educational procedures. These included the Mass, Advisory 
Council on Education, National Conference on Vocational Education at Providence, sponsored by H,E,W., Mass, 
Association of Vocational Administrators in Fitchburg, annual conference of School Committee Members and 
Administrators in Hyannis, and the annual convention of the American Vocational Association in Portland, 
Oregon. 

It has been most apparent that, in order to have a successful school program it requires the cooperation of 
many individuals, including students, teachers, custodians, office staff, administration, parents, and School 
Conmittee members, I feel we have been extremely fortunate in having a very healthy relationship with aill 
these individuals involved so that we can take pride in that we do have a veiy vibrajit and enthusiastic 
operation which we hope will continue to grow and succeed. 



Carter (Sarah D, J.) Lecture Fund 



There was no program planned for 1 971 , 

On Friday evening, March 2U, 1972, at 8:1^ P,M, in the Herbert C, Barrows Auditorium in the High School, we 
are looking forward to presenting the St, Paul's Boys' Choir under the direction of Mr. Theodore Marier. This 
is one of the superior boys' choirs in the world. They have appeared at the Vatican in Rome, Notre Dame, Paris 
Boston Symphony, and each year they appear with Mr. Arthur Fiedler and the Boston Pops, presenting the 
Nutcracker Suite. Twice a year they appear with Mr. Kenneth Wilson at the John Hays Hammond Museum in 
Gloucester, 

There are approximately forty-five boys, and they all come from the greater Boston Roman Catholic Archdiocese 
and Parochial School System, They are the choir of St, Paul's Church in Cairbridge.

for the reasonable protection of public safety and health in the proposed use of the site. 

4. The final action by the Town Engineer shall consist of either (1) a finding and determination 
that the proposed site plan is adequate for the reasonable protection of public safety and health in 
the proposed use of the site, or (2) a written denial of the application and site plan for such finding 
and determination, stating in complete and precise detail the reasons for said denial and wherein any 
elements in and any particular features of the application and site plan are deemed to be inadequate, 
and further specifying in complete and precise detail each and every change and modification in said 
application and site plan together with the reasons therefore, which if accepted by the applicant and 
incorporated in or applied to said application and site plan, would result in a finding and determina

of public safety and health in the proposed use of the site.

resubmit a modified or amended application and site plan. 

7. The period within which final action shall be taken may be extended for a definite period by 
mutual consent of the Town Engineer and the applicant. In the event the Town Engineer determines that 
a site plan is inadequate to permit him to make a finding and determination, he may, in his discretion, 
instead of denying the application, extend the period to a later date to permit the applicant to sub- 
mit a revised site plan or application, provided, however, that such period is extended to a day certai 
by mutual consent.

S. I, L. C. 



In 1971 the Subregion Intertown Liaison Committee began to look to areas other than the Route 2 issue which so 
occupied us during 1970, We formed a watchdog committee for 1-290 along with Maynard, Marlboro, Hudson, Stow, 
and Acton. At the end of the year, we endorsed the efforts of the West Suburban Regional Refuse Disposal 
Planning Board, We reviewed in detail the Route 62 consultant's report. Our main work however was in the 
Route 20 area ^rtiere SILC proposed both a continuation of rail service as well as a federally funded demon- 
stration project in mass transportation. 

We also were in contact with the Citizens for Middlesex County in our quest for better coxmty government. We 
maintained active liaison with Mass Port over Hanscom Field and both the noise and various land fillings 
threat. One project that is coming off the ground is that of a new peripheral road around Hanscom Field to 
relieve Concord and Bedford Center traffic and to connect to Lexington's proposed Hartwell connector. 

We feel that in 1 972 our two main areas of concentration will be to work with the Commonwealth and develop 
early in the year a comprehensive, participatory planning function for total, balanced transportation within 
SILC, and second, to make the West Suburban Refuse Disposal Region become a reality before the Coimonwealth 
and/or other elements force us to regionalize. Further, housing for low and moderate income persons will 
undoubtedly continue to grow into a very significant portion of our planning work. SILC will also have to 
become involved in Bicentennial planning as well in 1972.
